Cold vs. Flu – Which One Do I Have?

The 2013 flu season is under way, with an increase in reported cases over last year. The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot, so call your doctor today to make an appointment. And remember, it takes 2 weeks after your shot to become fully protected, so the sooner you and your children get one, the better!

If you or your child is already sick, it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between the cold and the flu. In our latest video, Dr. Jaime Friedman clearly explains the difference between their symptoms, and how to treat them.

Tips for Choosing Just the Right Pediatrician for Your Baby

Pregnant and almost ready to deliver your baby? Children’s Physicians Medical Group is here to help. One of the most important decisions you’re now faced with is choosing a pediatrician. Most parents-to-be ask their friends and family for recommendations, which is a great way to start the process. Here are some tips and questions to ask before choosing who cares for your family’s latest addition.

Referrals from family and friends? Ask them this:

–   Why do you recommend your doctor?

–   How long have you been with them?

–   What’s the office atmosphere like?

You should feel comfortable with the pediatrician you choose:

–  They should be warm, compassionate and open minded to your thoughts and feelings

–  They should complement your own personality

–  You should feel comfortable asking questions, no matter how trivial they may seem

Before making a decision, schedule an interview with the doctor:

-You’ll have a chance to see the office in action

-You can ask the doctor some general questions, like what should you do if your baby’s sick and it’s after office hours

In the end, go with what your gut instinct tells you. You’ll be doing that a lot as a parent!
